Update on model builds

So, I recently got my hands on a second pair of Carnifex-sized devourers, making enough for the 'Dakkafex'. I've just finished painting it up in green with purple carapace and maybe a picture of it will be up soon.
For the Space Marines, my next plan is to build a Captain with relic blade and storm bolter. I've almost finished a fourth tactical squad and third devastator squad.

New Space Marine/ CSM pictures

So, another recruit has been added to the Kings of Chaos, in the form of a Chaos Dreadnought. It has been painted gold/ red (it follows Khorne!). Now, to make it safer for the rest of the legion, it has been given a pair of dreadnought close combat weapons but it can still chop up its enemies.
Here's what it looks like! The right arm is a conversion job using a claw, heavy weapon arm and green stuff.
Now, I have been making some progress with getting my Space Marines built up/ painted. Here's the first picture. It also shows that white is a pain in the neck to paint properly. This is a space marine captain with jump pack, power fist and lightning claw (armed to deal with quite a lot of different threats).
No doubt, I'll get to putting up more pictures of the Space Marines once I've finished the main squads. The 4th tactical and two terminator squads are one model away from being finished and one devastator squad is one lascannon away from a full complement of four!

Tyranids back in action

So, after a bit of time off, my Tyranids went back to the battlefield, in a 3,000 point per side battle against Chaos Space Marines. Battle heated up in the second turn, as all of the units placed in reserve came on, including two units of Zoanthropes dropping in, along with a Trygon and two units of Genestealers. These units wiped out a Defiler, 3 Obliterators and two units of Thousand Sons. They were also helped by Hive Tyrants hindering shooting/ close combats with Paroxysm. Two units of Berzerkers were wiped out in close combat over two rounds by a Hive Tyrant and Genestealer unit, although the Genestealers were almost wiped out in doing so. Later, the Zoanthropes got some target practice through hitting a Land Raider with Warp Lances, blowing it up. Eventually, at the 4th turn, battle ended with the CSM's getting totally wiped out.
Before battle, I got and painted up a sixth Zoanthrope, giving me two units of three.

Chaos Defiler repaired and re-painted

So, my Chaos Defiler suffered an accident last week, when it fell during the Apocalypse battle and suffered a broken back leg. I, however, saw this as an opportunity, as I'm slowly going through re-painting the CSM's to the Kings of Chaos colour scheme.
This ended up with me disassembling the Defiler, re-painting and putting the model back together. The end result was something like this:

Before the re-paint, it was mainly red. Now, it is back in action, ready for battle soon.
